With A Permit Worth $60,000, A hunter Killed An Elephant With Tusk Weighing 122lb

Hunting has been a passion since years. But when people realised that our wildlife is on the verge of extinction, they started banning hunting. Yet people who loved hunting, started paying millions of dollars just to get a permit to hunt an animal. 

Hence accordingly, a German hunter paid $60,000 for a permit to hunt the animals as part of an organised hunt. He killed an elephant, who might be the oldest of its kind. its tusk weighed about 122 pounds. It may be called a carelessness of people that they did not know about such animal in their park. They say that they think it came from the Kruger park in South Africa.

Within three months after the Cecil the lion was shot dead, a German hunter killed a large elephant, who had 122 lb tusks in a game park in Gonarezhou National Park in south-east Zimbabwe. People say that this elephant might have been the biggest shot in the history. This tusk were so big that they dragged along the ground according to Jonny Rodrigues, chairman for Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force.

The hunter is said to be a German, and he paid $60,000 for a hunting permit to shoot the gigantic bull Elephant a a part of hunting expedition. He was also assisted by an experience hunter in his trip. However, the identity of elephant is still unknown, but it may be in its mid-40s and it was not spotted in park until it was killed. As soon as the dead elephant pictures floated over internet, it got kudos from pro-hunting groups and wrath from conservationists.

The biggest living memory shot dead.

After Mr Rodrigues confirmed the death of the elephant. He said it is suspected that the animal may have come from the Kruger Park in South Africa. 'A huge elephant with tusks weighing 122 pounds was killed in Gonarezhou by a German hunter. We suspect this elephant may have come from Kruger Park,' he said. 'His tusk were so big that they dragged along the ground when he was walking' He said.

The animal lay dead, and people had nothing to say!!

The most disheartening thing is that if a local Zimbabwean kills an animal for food for his family he gets a sentence of 5 to 15 years in prison but when a wealthy foreign hunter comes and hunts a animal for fun, he can walk away so easily. Is this the message we wish to send to the world? But Kruger spokesman William Mabasa doubt on the theory that the beast had emerged at his park, saying: 'If this elephant came up from the Kruger, he would have had to go through all the communities on the edge of Gonarezhou and someone would have seen him. It's not possible.' When Cecil the lion was killed by a US dentist Walter Palmer in July as a part or organised hunt, there was a global cry. People swayed the poster of "American a murderer" and later on the doctor was forced to give up his practice. If that was justice then its time for it again!!
